  1. Guinea Pig Discussion
    Well, generally speaking I'm a rat person, but I've been doing some research on piggies and I got my first one this weekend. He's only a couple of months old and he's silver and white, very pretty. He's still a little skittish but I'll post pics soon. He's warming up to me, but he's terrified of...

  3. General Rodent Chat
    Ok. Sooo, I've heard about housing chinchillas and degus together, and I've also a few times heard of housing degus and guinea pigs together. I also know on degus.org it says degus could also live with rabbits, but I was wondering the accuracy (for lack of a better word) of that. Regardless of...
  4. Guinea Pig Discussion
    Okay I haven't really researched but I DO know that they need vitamin C. Okay I don't really know what I'm asking. I was in the petstore the other day (oh the dreaded pet store) and this girl kept asking us to hold animals because she didn't want to wait on customers. I totally...

  10. Rabbit Discussion
    Heys :) I'm trying to find a new cage for Zeus online for when we stay with Chris. We've been using a cube cage there but I don't have much room to make it huge, so I figured I might as well get him a nice sturdy cage. I don't want anything huge because of the limited space there, and Zeus is...

  13. General Animal Discussion
    Since I'm going to be working with animals soon, I figure it's best to educate myself even more and learn about animals I don't have. Can anyone recommend good sites? I used to bookmark sites but I lost them all.

  15. Guinea Pig Discussion
    I thought it would be fun to start a thread with everyone cages. Maybe some people can get some good ideas for their own piggies. I have had many cage designs over the past couple years. Thats one of the reasons I love C&C cages so much. You can always change them around. Here was one of my...

    Not sure if I can list this here. If not I am sorry. My name is Michelle. I rescue Guinea Pigs. I currently have 18 great little piggies. My GP's are looking for a great new home. They want someone who will play with them and feed them veggies and clean up after them. They are looking for...
  17. Guinea Pig Discussion
    I have finally put my two groups of girls in one cage. It took four months, but I think that they will finally be getting along. I just can't believe how they act towards each other now. There was bloodshed just a few months ago. Even three weeks ago, poor Gizmo got a busted lip. I redid...
  18. Guinea Pig Discussion
    Hi! I'm new here and I have a few questions. My family has 2 female guinea pigs, named Anika and Eleanor. Sometimes when I hold them they start to try to eat my hair. They aren't just chewing on it - they're really trying to eat it. Is this normal? Will it hurt them if they swallow any hair? We...
  19. Guinea Pig Discussion
    Lol I am so new to guinea pigs. They are so cute and lovable though. I was wondering what I means when you pet them and they headbutt you lol. They don't do it all the time just occasionally and only 2 of the 3 do. Thanks! ~Jenn
